4-year-old Indian-origin boy Shaan Dulay gets a reply from Queen Elizabeth II for inviting her on his Birthday

London, May 11, 2017: British Queen Elizabeth II reverted to a letter by a young boy of Indian Origin inviting her to his fifth birthday as he thought her to be a “real superhero” according to media reports.

Shaan Dulay, aged four was planning a birthday party on June 25 and asked his mother Baljinder to arrange a meeting with the respectable Queen so that she can arrange a trip to his home in Sandwell, West Midlands, England.

Shaan’s Mother told him that the Queen must be busy in the Buckingham Palace. Shaan suggested his mother that “maybe she can come here instead,” as reported by metro.co.uk.

“He had been learning about history at school and that the Queen was the longest reigning monarch – things like how she was when she first started. He came straight home and started reeling off all the information to us,” said Shaan’s mother.

The letter by Shaan reads: “Dear HRH Queen Elizabeth, I think you are the best Queen in the world. I really like your crown and the red cloak you wear; it’s like a superhero.”

He then begs her presence at his party before adding:“I need to talk to you about horses, planes and the poor children”.

But after drafting the invitation on March 13 the little boy lost hopes when a letter with the Royal seal arrived on May 3.

The letter on behalf of the Queen reads: “Although unable to accept your invitation to come to your house for tea because of her very busy schedule, the Queen greatly appreciated your kind thought for her and Her Majesty was pleased to learn that you too like horses.”

“The Queen hopes you have a very happy birthday on June 25,” it read. “When I picked up Shaan from school I said to him, there’s been a letter come for you today, and he just said, ‘Oh, from the Queen?’”, Baljinder said.

Shaun lives with his mother who is a probation officer, dad Onkar, 39, a coach driving instructor and a brother Roshan, one, stated “I was a bit disappointed. But I was very happy she read my letter. I really like the Queen. I like her horses and her dogs. I’m going to her house in the summer. I hope I meet her then.”

“He was over the moon to get a reply. We will be taking him to see the palace in the summer and he can’t wait. I have had to calm him down and tell him there is a little while to wait yet,” his mother summed.
